Reviews

Women’s Glacial™ Fleece III Hoodie is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 103.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love to Hike Purchased this top in three colors: ruby red, sea salt white and the purple/plum. They were true to the size ordered, kept me warm in the evening and morning when hiking in Banff, Alberta, Canada for four days. Plan on wearing them when we hike at Mt. Rainer, WA this late summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from thin shirt nice colors, for 5'4'' 128lb the M is good, since it is thin it isn't good for cold weather

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very well made! Super lightweight, but very warm. This is fitted, but not tight. Wish I could find more colors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good as a second layer I got this top in white, and unless you have something under is very see through. it runs a little larger, but again you need to have some room for the under layer. it looks good, and is very soft. I washed it in cold water on the washer machine but hang it to dry so it will not shrink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great warm hoodie I have this in all of the colors but white. LOVE them. I'm 5'6" 115lbs got the small in all of them. Colors are great. They wash well and if you stretch them back out before you put in dryer no shrinkage. Great for under fleece jacket or I bought a couple of the 1/2 zip fleece in matching colors works out reall well. The colors are perfect match. As another reviewer said it is more of a shirt not a jacket. Like some of the thin cotton hoodies out there but better fit more feminine . Found more colors on Amazon and plan to order some of them too!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Soft and lightweight This was thinner than I was expecting, so I had to return the M and kept the L so a warmer top could fit under it. Could be longer (with some pulling it barely covers my butt), but makes a nice cheery late winter/early spring "jacket". Really love the Harbor Blue with light-colored jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hoodie I love this fleece hoodie! I like the gathers in the back which makes it more flattering and feminine! I have 2 of these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice product It's very comfortable and pretty, I bought the sky blue one, love it. Also it's surprising to find that it's very easy to dry after being soaked with water or washed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good buy I got this for my daughter. She usually wears a small but had to get medium because of her long arms. She loves it. It's warm but thin which is good since she doesn't like bulky clothes.
Date published: 2016-02-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So soft Fit as expected. I wear a small and am 5'4'' and 115 lbs. Very soft material. Has a flattering gathering in the material on the back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy Great fit and very soft. I love the back. It's a very cute hoodie.
Date published: 2016-02-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a top; not a jacket! I took the recommendation to order a size up and that was wrong. This is a top: a lightweight, fleecy soft and warm top; not a thick jacket. It can be worn under a jacket. A size larger looks like a size too large. I returned for my usual size and I have plenty of arm movement and it doesn't sag awfully under my arms. If you're looking for a jacket, you probably don't want this. If you want a top with a bit of warmth, get this -- in your regular size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it so much I bought another one I really like this hoodie. It is lightweight but still warm. It has a more feminine style than other hoodies. It does run a bit small-I needed to size up to fit properly across the shoulders and chest, (40C) and as a result it is loose everywhere else. The sleeves are quite long but that is a common issue for me. My only complaint is that the color I ordered-Ruby Red, looked like a true red online, but when I received the hoodie it was actually a bright fuchsia color. I returned it and got another color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like the fit! I am 5'6"and 140 lbs. I usually wear an 8-10, but in Columbia and some other fitness brands, I often size up as I do not like a tight fit. That was the right choice, as the large fits great - a little loose. I can wear it by itself or fit something light under it. I think the medium would have fit as well, just not the fit I wanted. The nocturnal color is a beautiful blue/grey. My only complaint is that the fleece has a definite "stripe" pattern only on the front panel. I thought it would work out when washed, but not so. I believe it is a flaw in the fabric (only 3 stars in quality). It doesn't really bother me, so I am keeping it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfy! Great fleece, it is comfy and warm. I would recommend going up a size though. It fits if you get your regular size but I believe it would be more comfortable if you went up a size. I gave this one as a gift to someone who is about a Med/Lrg so I went up to a XL. She wasn't offended, just grateful it was roomy. I have the same one in my usual Med fits great but wish I went up because arms are not as loose as I prefer. I usually wear Talls but the length on sleeve is good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not a jacket This product is more like a pullover shirt, not thick enough for a jacket. The fabric is very thin like lightweight pajamas. It runs small, tight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredibly soft and high quality! This fleece is super soft and comfy, I love it! I am 5'6", 115 lbs, 32B chest and the size small fits perfectly. The sleeves are nice and long like I like them and it's not too tight or too baggy either, just nice and comfy. I've owned these for a couple years now (I have about 10 of them now) and they still look brand new. They wash very well and don't show any pilling or anything. They're just as soft as when I bought them! They are very lightweight and thin, but quite warm. I love that they're not so bulky, but still insulate very well. I actually use them for pajama tops because I'm always cold and they keep me cozy and warm with my fleece PJ pants. If I used them for outside, they would be great for chilly evenings or fall weather - but I have a nice Columbia fleece jacket for that. They'd be great to have in a backpack though to throw on if the weather changed suddenly, as it definitely does here in Colorado! Since I just wear them by themselves or with a tank underneath, the small is perfect for me. I probably would've bought a medium if I was wearing them on top of any other clothing. They're more like a warm sweatshirt, only thinner, so if you're looking for something warmer than that or wind/rain resistant, get a fleece jacket instead. Otherwise, they are super cozy and definitely last a long time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm in the rain I love this sweater! Although the material is not as thick as I'd expected it's the perfect layering piece, and works just as well as a top layer inside or in mild weather. I was looking for something like this to wear under my rain jacket and couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. The medium fits perfectly. I definitely recommend this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed larger size Bought this for a friend in a size L originally - her usual size but had to exchange for a XL. Once she had the right size, she wore it just about every day of our vacation. She layered it with a tee and liked the fact that it was lightweight and yet warm.

Date published: 2015-06-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So comfy I have three of these in different colors. No pilling after being washed and the cut is flattering. It's not bulky thanks to the thin material and the gathered stitching in the back. It's long enough in the body for good coverage. I'm 5'6" 125 lbs with long arms and the medium fits perfectly.
Date published: 2015-06-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I was looking and looking at this item due to conflicting reviews (I don't have Columbia store nearby). I'm 5'8" with long arms and generally 6-8, have several Columbia outerwear items in M (like several jackets, ski pants etc.). I didn't own any Columbia fleece tops. Anyways, I bought this in S and it's perfect, it's slim fit, but has long sleeves, just right for me. I don't think this style would look good loose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thinner than expected The material was thinner than I expected but very soft and comfy. It could be warmer but its still nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect cool weather fitted hoodie! I bought one of these (purple) light fleece hoodies last winter at Cabelas while shopping with my husband. What else is a girl to do in a huge manly store?! I wear it literally all the time. I love it so much that I bought another one (pink) from Columbia online this winter. I wanted the blue one too, but were out of my size :(. It is perfect because it is fitted, but not too tight, therefore it has a womanly fit unlike a big bulky sweat shirt, yet provides the same cozy warmth. I love that it has a pocket for your hands too. The value is exceptional - on sale for $24.90 - what a steal! It is casual, but you can "dress it up" if you throw on a cute scarf with it. My favorite cool weather outfit: warm leggings, Columbia fleece hoodie & UGG boots!! Thermal cup of coffee optional!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have this in 5 colors. I love this hoodie. It is very comfortable and flattering. I am 5"5" 110lbs and the extra small fits me perfectly. Not too tight and the sleeves are just long enough. Sometimes sleeves run short on me, but not this hoodie. It also washes very well and looks close to new after 5 washes already.
Date published: 2015-02-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great shirt! I love the detailing on this shirt, like the shirring across the back and the seams running down the sides and on the upper chest. Very feminine, and takes a cozy fleece to the next level. Great for casual workdays, running errands on the weekend, lounging on the couch. Hood is really roomy and cozy too. Runs about one size smaller, I am 5'3", 125lbs, 34B and the small is roomy enough for a thin shirt underneath. I really love this shirt and would absolutely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this hoodie! I would buy this again but it is sold out. Please make it again! The fit is slimming and the micro fleece feels so soft. I really am disappointed I can't order more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light weight and functional I odered this fleece hoodie in blue color. I am 6ft tall and normally wear size M, but got the fleece in size L and it fits perfect, with some room to spear. It is light weight and functional, perfect for outdoors or a coold summer night by the beach. The only complaint I have is that the hood is a bit large and not quite sits well, when fleece is on. I would have prefered it without a hood better. Other than that is it is great product and I will have a great use out of it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's not Sea Salt it's White! I ordered again based on the reviews, as recommended I went up a size to an X-large when I normally wear a large in majority of items like this. First of all I ordered the Sea Salt color thinking it would be an off white, it's not it is a White. Secondly as mentioned, it is thin and will need to be layered. Which I had ordered the Benson Springs Jacket in a what I would call Sea Salt color which will work well. I guess I will keep it for that reason, otherwise I would recommend wearing a cami underneath it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Soft, comfortable to wear I read most of reviews before I purchase this item,Its very soft, very comfortable to wear. I am 5'4, 115lbs. XS is fit but a bit long on the sleeve. But I don't feel as warm as other viewers. Good thing about Columbia is they sew their logo of most of products instead of print it. That tells me they focus on detail even just a shirt. Very impressive. I use to purchase NF al but they are not into detail anymore. so I purchase Columbia instead. There is one thing confusing me is they change their number all the time, you will need to find the right time to purchase in order to get good deal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Runs Small I am 5'7" around 150 lbs. and wear a size 10. I ordered a M and it was too snug. The fabric was thin. I thought it was cute but had to return due to being too small.
Date published: 2015-02-04
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but Thin Got this on sale. It looks and feels nice and is very soft. But it is also very thin so if you live in a cold place this will be one of many layers you will need. I would recommend it on sale as it is nice but at its full price I would expect something warmer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, stylish, and KEEPS YOU WARM! I am 5'7" and 133lbs, and hour glass shape. I could not be more happy with this hoodie!! I ordered red hibiscus in S and it fits perfectly! This color is actually more of a bright deep coral than red, which I loved. I have a long torso and arms and this fit me wonderfully.
Date published: 2015-01-19
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hoodie Love the hoodie - very lightweight but warm. Soft material and cozy feeling. Will probably order another in a different color.
Date published: 2015-01-14
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy but layer up if you're gonna be out in the cold! I love the color, I got the red hibiscus, it wasn't really red, more like a deep coral. I wear it over my normal clothes and under a jacket so it's warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect! Loose but flattering This is my new favorite lightweight hoodie. I can wear it with a t-shirt underneath when it's a little breezy or easily layer it under a coat. Because of how lightweight it is it works better as a top than a hoodie, but I prefer to wear something underneath since I can feel the seam across the back if I wear it by itself. One thing I LOVE about this hoodie is the little extra length in the arms. Even with my arms stretched out in front of me they don't pull back past my wrists. One note: super busty people might want to size up. I'm 5'10" with a 41" chest and I show little stretch lines on the chest. Not much of a problem, I just wear it with a sports bra but if you were larger I could see it being uncomfortable.
